In 2016, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Emergency Preparedness Requirements for Medicare and Medicaid Participating Providers and Suppliers regulation went into effect. Participating facilities are required to demonstrate compliance with the rule by November 2017. The purpose of the rule is to establish requirements to ensure adequate planning for both natural and man-made disasters, and coordination with federal, state, tribal, regional and local emergency preparedness systems. The regulation outlines four core elements of risk assessment and emergency planning, communication planning, establishment of policies and procedures, and training and testing. The expert speakers on this webinar will describe the key elements of the new regulation and share examples of activities that children’s hospitals can undertake to address the exercise requirements of this rule.


1. Describe the purpose and requirements of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Emergency Preparedness Rule requirements for participating children’s hospitals.
2. Identify three types of exercise and drills that have been used in children’s hospitals to meet the new regulation.
3. Recognize key resources that participating children’s hospitals can use to assist them in meeting requirements.
